Greatsword of Slave Knight Gael, the only weapon that he kept with him from beginning to end.
Originally an executioner's sword made for decapitation, this blade is heavily chipped and stained with the blood of countless battles.
Skill: Blade of Peril
A precarious technique unique to undead Gael. Leap in any direction, slamming the greatsword to the ground, then follow with normal attack for a large spinning slash, or strong attack to back-step and jump foward in an overhead slam.
Notes and Tips:
- Not buffable or infusable.
A true combo for this weapon (while two-handing) is R1+L2+R1.
- Upgrades with Titanite Scales.
- Gael's Greatsword +5 has 504 AR at 40 strength and 40 dexterity.
- The sword resembles a broken version of the Executioner's Greatsword. Before the boss fight with Slave Knight Gael, while he is still an NPC, he uses an Executioner's Greatsword.
- The spin part of Blade of Peril (L2+R1) can be parried.
- If you have a shield that allows for the use of weapon skills, the shield will still be held as you perform the weapon art.
